K1 Speed South Florida Challenge GP results for April 1st
05 April 2012
K1 Speed in South Florida held round four of the K1 Speed Challenge GP Race Series this past Sunday with a full mix of new and returning drivers all looking for a shot at the podium. With the recent driving school held by Patricio Jourdain the week before, many drivers were looking to make use of their newly acquired skills adding to the level of competition on the Super-Track configuration layout. Qualifying would be straight forward with Charles Abbott taking the pole position over the rest of the field.
The B Main drivers would be out on track first with Edgar Moyano leading the field from the pole position and holding off the field for a majority of the race. Drivers would shuffle back and forth a couple of positions for a number of laps, one driver Javier Bult, made up the most ground by coming from a fifth place starting position up to second just as the checkered flag dropped on the field. Edgar Moyano unfortunately dropped back a couple of spots on the last lap to a hard charging Jordan Robertson who made a move on the last lap to get around Edgar. With the checkered flag out on the podium Jordan would take the lead followed by Javier Bult in second and Edgar Moyano would close out his night in a respectable third.
Capping off the night were the A-Main drivers with veteran driver Charles Abbott leading the field from the pole position into turn one. With the field holding tight they would freight-train around with each-other for a couple of laps before settling in and drivers would start making position changes as the laps wound down. Unfortunately for Charles he would give up the lead on lap 6 to Rodney Williams who was making quick work of the field moving up to the front and Charles found himself dropping back to fourth to close out his night. The rest of the field remained in their qualifying positions with the checkered flag showing Rodney Williams would go on to take the win, followed by Anthony Ospino who held his ground their entire race, with Michael Apuzzo rounding out the top three on the podium.
With just two races to go in the K1 Speed Challenge GP Race series for the Hollywood Florida location, the race is on for the top 5 drivers in the hunt for the overall championship for the first half of the 2012 race season. Come out to our next race May 6th and take on the best indoor kart racing facility in South Florida with K1 Speed!
